Hi Stampers, I hope that you all had a nice Valentines celebrating the day. Right now in the Pacific Northwest we have been blessed with a beautiful sunny day and my gardens are calling my name. I thought I would enter a quick post before I get my hands dirty cleaning up from our wet winter. What a better way than to share a spring card made with Stampin Up’s Painted Petals stamp set from the Spring Catalog. We may still have some wet dark days ahead here in Portland but using this stamp set reminds me that spring is just around the corner. Enjoy!
Here is the recipe for the card:
Card base: Whisper White cut at 4- 1/4 by 11, scored at 5-1/2
Mat: Rose Red cut at 4 x 5-1/4
Embossed piece: Whisper White cut at 3-7/8 by 5-1/8
Circle Mat: Rose Red using circle framelits #7
Circle Art Piece: Whisper White #6
DSP: Painted Blooms paper 3-7/8 by 2
Embellishments: Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon, Candy dots, Rhinestones and Pearls
The Art Piece:
The art piece was stamped with the Painted petals poly stamp using daffodil delight ink then pounced with a sponge dauber in the edges of the flowers with Rose red ink. The leaves were stamped in Wild Wasabi. The sentiment was inked using Best Day Ever stamp set with my Stampin markers in Wild Wasabi and Rose Red pens in the ink to rubber technique. (this is where you use your pens to cover the stamped image instead of ink pads to get a two tones look.) I mounted my art piece with Stampin Up dimensionals to give it some added lift.
